The Top 10 Types of Nonprofits You Can Set Up

Today Toby Mathis, Esq. speaks with Karim Hanafy, Esq., Anderson’s non-profit expert, about the top ten types of non-profits you can form to access tax benefits for your charitable activities. These range from familiar causes like humanitarian aid (both domestic and international) to education (including scholarships) and even combating social issues through activities and therapy animals. Research, veteran/elderly assistance, and various housing needs rank high, as well as animal welfare, environmental causes, and empowering communities. Finally, the importance of supporting other nonprofits, regardless of their specific cause, is also an option.
